I am facing a problem trying to get openni_kinect working on my Ubuntu 12.04 and ros fuerte. We were previously working on Ubuntu 11.10 and ros electric and openni_kinect for ros electric worked seamlessly. We are looking at possible upgrade options but openni_kinect is giving some problems. Sorry for being so verbose but I will list out the problems I am having.
The ros_fuerte_openni_kinect built without problems, but when I do "roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch" i get the following errors:
1) Both roscore and roslaunch give this error :
Exception AttributeError: Attribute("'_DummyThread' object has no attribute '_Thread__block'",) in <module 'threading' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.pyc'> ignored.
The following packages have rpath issues in manifest.xml:
* openni_launch: found "-L/opt/ros/fuerte/lib", but no matching "-Wl, -rpath, /opt/ros/fuerte/lib"
and I get this for each and every package that openni_launch includes.
